    A Royal worthy fascinator

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     CWOCambridge used a hot glue gun to attach the feather ball to the fascinator base and glued the veil and feathers around the base of the feather ball. Then she twisted gold ribbon around the feather ball base and glued it to the fascinator base. She says she has been reading updates about the royal wedding since the engagement announcement, and plans to invite some friends for an English brunch and royal wedding viewing party.
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    Every good royal wedding deserves a fascinator.  I scoured Etsy and my local Michael's for the supplies.  One Bachelor episode later and voila!  A fascinator was born.  I learned 3 important lessons in my very first fascinator attempt:

    1- Spray paint a bird cage veil, they don't dye well.

    2- Fascinator bases can only be found in England, Australia and Arizona.

    3- Plan feather placement out before bringing out the glue gun.
